I'm reminded of the story that one of our VPs told, of a manager who had received far more applications for a certain job than he had time to look through. So he took half of the resumes that had piled up on his desk and said: "These people are unlucky. We do not want to hire unlucky people." And he threw those resumes in the trash, unread.

IIRC, that was a scene in the British version of The Office.

That story almost certainly comes from an old book, I read it a long time ago.
